Genesis 20:3-7


A.(3)But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man,

B. for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife.

C. (4)But Abimelech had not come near her:

D’. and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation? (5)Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this.

D’. (6)And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me:

C’.  therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.

B’. (7)Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet,

A’. and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.
